Charlotte, NC asked in Products Liability for North Carolina

Q: My wife went to Bojangles to get a sweet tea and when she took the lid off she found a plastic bag inside her cup.

They told her it was an accident and it happens all the time. Does she have a case?

A: If she didn't get sick, not much of one if she drank. If she didn't drink no. You are only compensated for injuries you received, not what could have happend. "eeeeeew" factor isn't compensible. Foreign object is a violation of food acts, but again not much happened so not worth much.
